How Do I Teach Art To Kids Ages 3 – 10
Artabet is helping teachers around the world with how to teach art to kids ages 3 to 10. We are featuring our new teachers in this blog: Megha, Vineesha, Josef, Judi, and Lene.
Let’s Start in Mumbai, India with Megha’s students.
Megha sent me this link of some of her students enjoying painting in her after school program. The skill level is very obvious and these kids are doing a super job and having so much fun. I know that the Artabet method has kept my students: and I have had thousands, happy and creatively ‘sparked’ for the past 30 years. It is a method that really keeps them engaged and excited.
Here are her students drawing ARTABET SOUP from the Artabet Curriculum that uses the Artabet First Steps In Drawing book.

Here is her enthusiastic email about finding the Artabet website.
Thanks & Regards,
Founder & Teacher,
We have some great Artabet movement in Texas, ‘The Artstar State’.
Here is Josef, a new Artabet mom, and her reaction to the Artabet.
First, thank you for sharing your talent with the world! As a parent with a four-year-old who is intimidated by the drawing process, I believe this is going to be a great resource to remove the fear and break down the process. I purchased the book and was expecting to get the holiday pictures that was said to be included in the purchase or through the email submission signup. Perhaps I overlooked it, but I don’t see them in the book nor did I receive them after signing up for the distribution list. If you can forward those to me I’d greatly appreciate it.
Thank you so much for following up! That was very kind of you. I did indeed get the free downloads and we have begun our Artabet studies with great success. In fact, after I got much hesitation about drawing a self-portrait from my son for a PK assignment (his current school is VERY big into art and expression), I used the principles in Artabet to help him gain a lot of confidence to draw a picture. Since then he has also had to draw pictures of himself and Lenny (a stuffed dog that each kid in his class has to “house sit”). He was so intimated by those instructions, but after breaking down the process for him using one of the examples in your book, he is much more confident and so proud of his art! Thanks again!
I am an interior designer by trade and it wasn’t until I went back to school to obtain another degree in design that I had to take art classes. I noticed how inhibited and intimidated I was of the drawing process, which now seems crazy because there IS such a thing called an eraser! In discussing these fears with my husband, who, by his own admission, “can’t even draw a stick figure,” we realized that we did not want our son to internalize those fears in these early stages of his life. That’s the reason I started looking for a curriculum like yours. We are strong advocates of early learning and breaking down seemingly complex processes into simple steps. Your program does just that!
I wanted to share one of the early videos I did of our son during/after his first Artabet project! Thanks again, for giving me the “language” I did not have to teach my child.
Josef H. Texas, USA
Have a look at this video clip from Josef H. and her son as he draws a perfect Artabet Person all by himself. (with a few directions from a very supportive Artabet mom.
It starts to get exciting in the middle of the clip as he realizes what he can draw. Artistic empowerment at an early age is key for our young ‘creatives’
Now, Down To South Africa
My Name is Lené, I live in South Africa. I am in the process of opening an art school in one of our smaller towns called Tzaneen. In my search for finding creative ways of teaching my soon to be young students I came across your Artabet and fell in love with it. I am interested to make it a large part of my curriculum if I have the thumbs up from you ..? And is it best to have your book downloaded or have a hard copy of it.
Thank you for your inspiration. I can’t wait to start teaching.
Judi Lacks, a talented digital art instructor from the Eastern USA made this for us and Megha from Mumbai, India joined in with a great ink drawing from her Holiday Classes using the Free Teacher Holiday Pacs.
How Do I Teach Art?
I get the Artabet Book, follow the Artabet Curriculum, watch and use the videos, implement the great class projects in the blogs, and download the Free Teacher Holiday Pacs.
It’s worked for the past 30 years and it will work for the next 30 years.
Oh yes, email Ron at any time for help. All five teachers featured in this blog are being supported and encouraged by our team here at ARTABET INK. Why not join us on a remarkable journey that will open a way for the creative uniqueness of every child to be expressed.
